Falling in love with a New England barn

Shrewsbury - When one picture's New England, a big red barn surrounded by stone walls is often one of the images that come to mind. That vision, plus watching "The Good Life" on HGTV, drove Gail and Joe Aslanian to move from Michigan to Shrewsbury back in the late 90's. Joe had owned a cabinet making business outside of Detroit. Gail was an elementary school art teacher. They had lived in Michigan for 27 years, and when they thought about their retirement, they decided that they wanted a place big enough for all their crafts and collections. Since Joe's family came from Worcester, the couple started looking for a property with a barn in this area. They searched with mounting frustration for months, but nothing was what they envisioned. A newspaper ad eventually led to a six-acre property in Shrewsbury on a stream that included a big red barn, an antique house and three income producing apartments.
